Desean Jackson: Get Those ‘Crying’ Eagles The F*ck Out of Here (Video) Sun, 21 Dec 2014 03:06:06 +0000 desean-jackson

DeSean Jackson went out and showed the Philadelphia Eagles everything that they were missing in the passing game by dominating Bradley Fletcher on the way to a huge upset victory.

After his at his locker, he spotted an Eagles reporter and asked, “Whatcha doin’ here? I bet you they’re over there crying. You should go back over there with them.”

Jackson, with the help of some timely RG3 throws, single-handedly crushed the Eagles playoff hopes. Jackson had a lot more trash talk to unleash on his former team afterwards.

Asked if he was surprised that the Eagles left him one-on-one with Fletcher, Jackson said with a laugh: “Not at all. Last year, when I had been there the last couple years, that’s how they play. They’re very naive and they play how they play. They could care less who is out there or who is at wide receiver, they’re going to play their defense the way they play it,” he said.

“That’s the Philadelphia Eagle defense. I’ve been there a lot of years and witnessed a lot of players – wide receivers, tight ends – get off on some huge games on them, and I’m just happy to be on this side and be able to send them home with a loss.”

Jackson then delivered the ether when asked if the Eagles missed him.

“That’s a question to ask them. As far as my ex-teammates, guys out there on the field, I think a lot of them guys miss me,” he said. “They tell me that during the game. Still have good relationships with a lot them guys over there, and they constantly tell me how much they miss me and they wish I was still there. But it’s a decision they chose to make in the front office. I’m happy to be here in Washington.”

Report: Browns Will Explore Trading Up For Marcus Mariota Sun, 21 Dec 2014 01:29:13 +0000 mariota

I think this is more about a franchise doing it’s due dilligence, than it is about the Browns giving up on Johnny Manziel.  Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns will explore the idea and options of trading up for Heisman Trophy winner, Marcus Mariota.

With coach Mike Pettine admitting this week that the Browns will have doubts about Johnny Manziel even if he hits “it out of the park” in the final two games and “a ton of doubts” if he doesn’t play well, the Browns will explore all of their options at quarterback, including trading up into the top five to draft Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer has repeatedly said that he’ll always explore every option at all positions — and Mariota is one glaring and tempting possibility for the Browns this offseason. The Browns have scouted him this season and will continue to do so.

It would be an incredible longshot, but not impossible.

Since last year, league sources have been telling that Farmer is enamored with Mariota, the 6-4, 215 phenom from Oregon. Mariota cemented his status as the top quarterback in the draft — and likely No. 1 overall pick — with another terrific season for the high-flying Ducks.

If the Browns reach the conclusion after Manziel’s three starts that he’s not their quarterback of the future, they’ll consider every possibility for an upgrade at the position, including making a pitch for the premier quarterback in the draft.

It makes complete sense. As a franchise you have to explore your options if you don’t believe Manziel can lead your organization to a Super Bowl.

If you can move up to select Mariota, while finding a team that is enamored with Manziel, then the trigger should be pulled.

If you follow college football recruiting at all you know that Cedar Hill has a special wide receiver named Damarkus Lodge. Tonight in the state championship game against Katy High School, Lodge reeled in an insane catch then proceeded to keep his balance and rumble to the end zone.

I’m not sure where Lodge is going to end up, but whoever gets him is getting a special talent.

Two NYPD cops were executed Saturday after a gang member from Baltimore drove to the city to kill police officers after wounding his girlfriend, sources told the Daily News.

The shooter, identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, boasted about wanting to kill cops in the hours before he ambushed the officers outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 3 p.m. Saturday.

“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” Brinsley wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of a silver handgun.

Brinsley made good on his promise, firing several rounds into the patrol car parked near Myrtle and Tompkins Aves., witnesses said.

Here also made ominous FB posts.

]]> 2 Nets-Kings Discussing Trade For Deron Williams Sat, 20 Dec 2014 23:55:52 +0000 deron-kings

The Sacramento Kings owner wants to play fatansy basketball, so why not trade for the former No. 1 point guard in the NBA.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings are discussing a deal that would send Deron Willams to the Kings for Darren Collison and Jason Thompson.

No deal is imminent, but the talks are ongoing, sources told Yahoo Sports.

The talks have centered on sending the Nets point guard Darren Collison and forwards Derrick Williams and Jason Thompson as part of a multi-player package for Williams, league sources said.

Sacramento has significant interest with Williams, but a hurdle to a possible deal is the Kings’ desire to have center Mason Plumlee included into the package, league sources said. Brooklyn has considered Plumlee a significant part of its future core.

The Kings have been thrilled with Collison, who has emerged as a strong leader and a popular teammate this season. There remains a reluctance for Sacramento to move him in a deal, sources said, but the Nets would need a point guard to replace Williams.

The combination of Williams’ massive salary and declining health and production leave the Nets with little leverage to take back much more than spare parts for the one-time All-Star guard. Brooklyn is 10-15 and sitting ninth in the Eastern Conference.

3 Things We Learned From the CBS Sports Classic Sat, 20 Dec 2014 23:37:50 +0000 CBS Sports Classic

It’s UK vs Everybody Else. If you’ve watched Space Jam, then you’ll get this analogy. The Kentucky basketball are the real life Monstars. A team that is bigger, stronger, faster and more intimidating than any other team in college hoops. They may have had eyebrow raising struggles against lesser opponents like Columbia, but heading into conference play Coach Calipari has this team clicking on all cylinders. Does that mean they will go undefeated? I doubt that – the inevitable “trap game” is bound to happen – but there’s no doubt they’ll be a #1 seed in next year’s NCAA tourney and the clear favorite to win it all.

UNC Has A Lot of Work to Do. The Tar Heels got a much needed win against 12th ranked Ohio State, but the game was a tale of two halves. In the first half UNC looked like the team we all thought they’d be. They were limiting their turnovers, had good ball movement and were shooting the ball fairly well. But in the second half, the Tar Heel team that lost to Iowa and Butler reared their ugly head. They made careless errors, committed dumb fouls and shot the ball poorly. If UNC is going to be competitive in the ACC, Roy Williams acknowledged they’ll have to get better at all facets of the game and they’ll have to do it quickly. Can UNC be the top 10 team we all thought they’d be? Yes, but it will take quite of bit of improving to get there.

There’s Always a Teaching Moment. Even though UCLA got the brakes beat off of them by Kentucky, you can always use it as a teaching moment. Coach Alford could talk about how the team continued to fight back and improve their shooting percentage from a dismal 8.1% in the first half to over 40% in the second half. Highlight that they showed fight and perseverance against a squad that features at least 5 future NBA players. Show how they settled into their game and played better defensively.

Sometimes you just play a team that’s far better than you. If you’ve ever played sports, it happens. You live with that, and move on, trying to improve your game to get to that level.

Notable Post-Game Quotes:

Thad Matta on team heading into Big Ten Play:

I think we obviously have issues. We’ve got two losses to two really, really really good basketball teams, great basketball teams. I think to put ourselves in that position, we’ve got to look ourselves in the mirror and say, hey, we’re not there yet, which is fine, but we’ve got to look at all the little things that we have to do to get better and get that established. Knowing that it’s – I don’t want to say it’s early, but it’s still December, we’ve got January, February, March still to play basketball. How much better can we get in that time.

Roy Williams’ opening statement after OSU win:

Opening thoughts is thank God it’s Christmas. Let’s get the crap out of town and enjoy Christmas for a while That’s the opening thought.

John Calipari on what he thinks the real story is about his team.

We can all talk about defense and blocking shots and playing hard…you’ve got ten guys/11 guys sharing minutes. You have two point guards who are two of the best point guards in the country sharing minutes. You have Karl Towns and Dakari Johnson sharing minutes. You have Willie, one of the best big guys in the country, sharing minutes with Marcus Lee. You have Aaron Harrison, who’s really good, then you’ve got Devin sharing minutes. That’s the story, and I would say to all of you, if it were your son and he had pro potential and he was on that board to be drafted, would you be ok with him playing 20 minutes?

HS WR Makes Amazing 1-Handed TD Catch in Title Game (Video) Sat, 20 Dec 2014 22:23:34 +0000 1=handed-catch

This was amazing.

Dez Bryant had to have been in uniform for this play.

Navasota Rattlers beat the Argyle Eagles 42-35 at AT&T Stadium on Friday night, winning the Texas Class 4A Division I championship game and snapping Argyle’s 31-game winning streak.

Navasota wide receiver Tren’Davian Dickson pulled off the Bryant impersonation, making an NFL-caliber one-handed touchdown grab while draped by two defenders.

Dickson promptly threw up the X like Bryant as well.
